3 out of 5 stars Slick.

Weird, crimpy, slick start, but an entertaining sequence for the crux. The last bolt is maybe 12 feet below the chains, just under a ledge, so don't slip once you're up. The route is super close to where all the first-timers climb, so it gets crowded.

Slippy start, cool spot before the bulge were you have to bear hug the rock.
